You are invited to a lecture and round table discussion with Susan Burton, activist and movement builder on behalf of formerly incarcerated women. She is the founder and director of A New Way of Life Reentry Project (ANWOL) http://anewwayoflife.org/. Susan was among the 5 finalists for CSUN's 2018-2019 Common Read, and while her book was not ultimately selected, it has received national attention. Her ANWOL Project in the Watts area of South Los Angeles has become a model across the country of direct services to women returning from prison.  The event will also highlight the student organization, Revolutionary Scholars, comprised of formerly incarcerated students and students who have been impacted by mass incarceration. These and other activist students are invited to take part in a roundtable with Susan after her talk.
